A long time ago, when I first moved to Omaha, I took a second job at Banana Republic. I know, I know... If you've seen me lately you may be wondering how this could be considering my clothes consist of a smorgasbord of hiking and running clothes. But it's true, at one point, I did in fact care about all of the pretty things rather than the practicality of my wardrobe. I don't think there's any going back for me. Anyway, I only bring up this fun tidbit because it's actually relevant to this post: I used to work with Liz at Banana. She's all substance and style, beauty and kindness.
